THE RE-10

The RE-10 is a document the buyer's agent sends to the seller's agent. This document contains the repairs and replacements the buyer wants before closing. We must get a copy of this document to see what was requested word for word (or a detailed written list of what was on the document).

Repair Request Report

This is a report that can be made online within the home inspection report.

COMMON QUESTIONS

WHAT IS A HOME RE-INSPECT

The inspector returns to the home to reinspect items that were repaired/replaced as recommended on the home inspection report.

WHAT IS NOT APART OF A HOME RE-INSPECTION?

  • Items that were not within the original home inspection report.

  • A Sewer Inspection or Radon Test.

    • Sewer repair reinspections are $50 and Radon reinspections are $132

WHY IS A HOME RE-INSPECTION SO IMPORTANT?

A home re-inspection may save you hundreds if not thousands of dollars! The main reason you get a home inspection in the first place is to know the condition of the home you are buying. Another reason is to try and negotiate with the seller and have them fix/replace items addressed in the report. The things requested range from minor to expensive fixes that the seller promised to complete.


We have countless stories of where we return to reinspect it, only to find that the seller had not addressed the issues. One time we reinspected a house the day before closing and informed the buyers that the electrical work (the requested list was reasonably long) was never addressed and was in the same state as during the inspection. ​

HOW MUCH DOES A HOME RE-INSPECTION COST?

  • The reinspection does not have a service fee. However, depending on the location, there may be an added travel fee.

  • If the home inspection had a travel fee, the reinspection fee is usually the same amount.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

  • The reinspection does not come with a warranty

  • I give my opinion on whether or not the seller completed what they agreed upon. Any further issues arising due to repairs or replacements should be brought up with the contractor or company that completed the work. I always recommend requesting documentation of repairs completed. (Who completed the work, notes stating what was done, and information on warranties if present)

  • If the property is not ready for the home inspection, there will be a fee for the inspector to return to the property. EXAMPLE: The power was off, the water was off, the attic/crawlspace accesses were not readily accessible, etc
